Alongside the series order announcement, it was confirmed that Carla Gugino would star in the series as the titular character Jett. On June 19, 2018, it was announced that Giancarlo Esposito, Elena Anaya, Michael Aronov, Gaite Jansen, Christopher Backus, Gil Bellows, and Violet McGraw had been cast as series regulars and that Jodie Turner-Smith, Gentry White, Lucy Walters, and Mustafa Shakir were set for recurring roles.
